CSA apologises to CA

CSA apologises to CA

Reports suggest that the South African batsmen have complained to umpires about tape on Warner's left hand on the second day of the second Test in Port Elizabeth.

Clive Eksteen and Altaaf Kazi have been ordered to CSA headquarters in Johannesburg for a meeting, and the chances are high that they could lose their jobs.

Two officials from Cricket South Africa are on the verge of being sacked after a photograph emerged that shows them grinning alongside fans wearing "disgraceful" Sonny Bill Williams masks.

In a statement issued on Saturday, Cricket South Africa distanced itself from the action of the officials, marketing manager Clive Eksteen and communications manager Altaaf Kazi.

David and Candice Warner were married in 2015.

According to Fairfax Media, the Australian camp were aware of the masks going into the first day of the Test, and asked that they be banned.

"On behalf of CSA, I extend my honest apologies to the board of Cricket Australia (CA), its officials, team management, players and their families", CSA president Chris Nenzani said in a statement on the weekend.

The plane was also carrying three crew, an official for Turkey's transport ministry said. He said DNA tests would be needed to identify the dead.

England dominant in series decider
Having been put into bat, New Zealand suffered a huge early blow when Munro went for a duck with the third ball of the match. New Zealand had been dismissed for 223 after England never allowed the hosts to develop any momentum with the bat.

He also said that Tesla tried to work with the Obama administration on this imbalance, but that "nothing happened". Musk also said he was "against import duties in general, but the current rules make things very hard ".

CSA said Eksteen and Kazi were now subject to "internal processes". "On behalf of CSA I extend my honest apologies to the board of Cricket Australia (CA), its officials, team management, players and their families", commented CSA President Chris Nenzani in a CSA statement.

Australian newspaper the Sydney Morning Herald reported that the Australia team was "outraged" by the South African officials apparently condoning the masks.

Warner's wife Candice had a tryst more than 10 years ago with Williams. She is also a model and celebrity TV star.

The allegations are the latest development in what has been a fractious series.

Quinton de Kock's retort to Warner's sledging was to mention Williams and his brief relationship with Warner's wife, at which Warner became angry and violent. Warner was fined 75% of his match fee and earned three demerit points for the incident, later claiming de Kock had made a "vile and disgusting comment", about his wife Candice.

Australia celebrate the wicket of Kagiso Rabada.

"Cricket Australia spoke to Cricket South Africa officials yesterday to express disappointment with this matter and events that unfolded off-field Friday at St George's Park", a CA spokesperson said.
